A Portland man is lucky that his cell phone reception was just enough to rescue him off of Broken Top mountain.  The Deschutes County Sheriff's Search and Rescue received a call from William Aue, 57 Tuesday afternoon around 2 p.m., when Aue knew he had taken a wrong turn in his attempt to climb South Sister.

 

Two fellow hikers; Axel and Katju Nastansky, both from Denmark said they had been hiking with Aue earlier, but split up when Aue decided not to attempt the South Sister Summit.  Through several phone calls SAR was able to determine Aue's location and "talked" him down to the area of Moraine Lake near Devil's Lake Trailhead.
